2014 Crop Report

Please give us a call before coming to pick your favorite variety. Even though our Crop Report is updated regularly during the harvest season, our picking schedule can change from hour to hour due to weather conditions and the number of visitors we have for U-Pick each day!

Apples

We will be picking Goldrush and the remaining Empire and Ozark Gold as they are getting very thin. Liberty and Ultra Gold are still available with rows yet to be opened. There are a few scattered Red Delicious left in the tops of the standard trees and we will be bringing out the pickers so they can be picked along with the Empire. Our orchards cover 55 acres, so be prepared to do some walking to find the apples that are still available. Crispin, Jonafree and Ozark Gold are available pre-picked along with Honeycrisp, Senshu, Jonagored, Cortland, Empire, Red Delicious, Regent and Liberty. We will still have Honeycrisp pre-picked in our Harvest Barn and Apple Barn with more just harvested, but they are going fast.

Peaches

Peaches are no longer avaolable.

Sweet Corn

Sweet Corn is no longer available.

Raspberries

Raspberries are no longer available.

Fresh Vegetables

Sugar Cube melons are available pre-picked only. Squash is available pre-picked only.

Pumpkins

Pumpkins and gourds are now available.

Winter Squash

Winter squash is now available.
